Mary Beth Doyle Park has picnic tables; a basketball court; a playground; paved, unpaved, and wooden boardwalk trails; and an 18-hole disc golf course on 85 sprawling acres. A wetland preserve with native flowers, formed by an unusual dam-and-channel system that diverts Malletts Creek, affords opportunities for wildlife viewing year-round. Some trails are very wet and muddy during parts of the year..

Farther south, Pittsfield Township has nearly a square mile of open space at the Pittsfield Preserve. Located north of Michigan Ave. east of Platt, its 626 acres encompass more than four miles of nature trails, wetlands, woods, and meadows.
